Hi, I made a less readable but more functional fork of this. I tested it only in the python console but it should work :).

>>> task = ["", "", ""]
>>> input = ["", "ola"]
>>> def totask(x):
...   task[x[0]] = x[1]
>>> list(enumerate(input))
[(0, ''), (1, 'ola')]
>>> map(totask, list(enumerate(input)))
[None, None]
>>> task
['', 'ola', '']
